So during the week I was doing my comprehensive exam, the internet went out 4 times. During downtimes I needed something to calm me down so I wouldn’t call and say terrible things to my internet provider. So, I pulled out my Ashford Knitter’s Loom and the Irish Spring Scarf kit from Bluebonnet Hill Alpacas. I have only used the loom maybe 3 times in the 2 years I’ve owned it so, needless to say, I’m not real great at this. I have a hard time getting my edges even. When I started this project I Googled how to do that and, I know this will shock you, but the solution given was “go slowly and carefully”. Crazy, huh? I also don’t beat my rows very evenly. I think I was able to improve my edges this time over the last time but on my next project I’d like to focus on beating really tight and even.
Here’s the process. Also, please excuse the finished project pictures. I took the scarf in my purse to show my Mom (I like to try and justify her purchasing this loom for me) and it got wrinkled. I haven’t had a chances to straighten it out again.
